Re: UK Open Sudoku and Puzzle Tournament 28-29 April 2012

We already have 17 competitors registered! I see that Premier Inn Trafford Centre West has now gone up to £63. The situation with these hotels is that they operate a pricing system which responds to demand, just like the airlines. So the price may well drop to £29 again if you wait. Alternatively, y...

Re: 2011 UK Sudoku Championship (11-12 June 2011)

Well done Tom, great job! It would be useful to get some more feedback so that we can make adjustments for next year. I've already got the point about tightening the definition of a Sudoku, and that the Classics should be a bit easier. Please don't blame Puzzler for this, because we selected the one...

The Skyscraper, Calcudoku and Futoshiki were included because they are familiar to new uk players and are a good test of some of the skills that are needed for WSC. I hope people will enjoy these puzzles and accept this small indulgence.
